<— Good morning everyone!! Okay first… my own book news. ;) HOLY MOLY about this one and I just keep hearing about Binding 13: Boys of Tommen #1.

In case you’re wondering what to read today, this one keeps making waves in our book-crew so I just one-clicked it and am starting it now (for anyone that wants to buddy-read with me). I can’t take the buzz here anymore, I MUST feel the feels too!!! :P  ;)

OH AND!!! NEWS for when the sequel is coming out, right here:

Melinda: Really waiting for sequel to Binding13. Soooo good. Still can’t stop thinking about it and I’m up to my 3rd book since I read it.

Jan: NA and bullies aren’t usually my fav. But there was just something mesmerising about this book. I got drawn right in and I just had to keep on reading.

Robyn: I’m finishing up Binding 13, which is so well written and has all the feels. It was so worth reading.

LisafromDFW: Someone recommended Binding 13. Sloooooooow burn and a cliffhanger!!!! I’m dying. I loved it. Damaged h. Thx for recommending!!!!

Nay: I’ve been tempted over and over this week to read Binding 13 but wasn’t ready to commit to such a long book, but I can’t take it anymore! It’s next on my list!

Lisa: Dying for the sequel!!!!!!! I wonder when it’ll be out???

Paula: November 29th for Keeping 13. Can’t wait! I read this as soon as it came out

And now… more book and author news. ;)

Lauren Blakely’s latest JUST WENT LIVE EARLY!!! Once Upon A Real Good Time (One night stand with a Rock Star but…) ;)

“…That smoking hot one-night stand with a former rock star? Turns out he’s my son’s new music teacher. Oops.
But I didn’t know that the night I met Campbell…”

Kennedy Ryan’s latest JUST WENT LIVE EARLY!!! Block Shot: A HOOPS Novel (an ENEMIES-TO-LOVERS romance!!) He broke her heart…

…If I had a dollar for every time Jared Foster broke my heart, I’d have exactly one dollar.
One night. One epic fail. One dollar . . . and I’m out.
I’ve moved on.
I’ve found success in a field ruled by men.
Anything they can do, I have done better.
They can keep the field while I call the shots, blocking them when I have to.
And Jared has the nerve to think he gets a second chance?…

A.L. Jackson’s LATEST JUST WENT LIVE!!! More of You is a second chance romance and he broke her heart!!

I promised myself I’d never lose my heart to him again. Even time couldn’t dim our chemistry. One glance of his intense eyes, and I become weak. One brush of his hand, and he brings me to my knees.

Little do I know, Jace holds the key to everything I’ve lost and everything that threatens my future.  Now he will either save me, or he will break me all over again . . .

Tijan is teasing about her next upcoming book… (Heather’s story) and there is a ton of squeeing in the comments. ;)

Caroline Kepnes NEWS!!! One of my FAVORITE CREEPY STALKER psych-thriller ummm… ”love story??” books goes live on TV TONIGHT!!!! You: A Novel (Lifetime) has been turned into a TV series and the pilot will be on Lifetime tonight at 10pm!!!!! Eeeeeeeeeeep!!! This is the book that set me on a constant search for more creepy stalker stories. Not that I want one of my own. Nuh uh!! BUT OMG is it fun reading one, from HIS POV and then… him in a relationship. *thud* MORE PLEASE!!! Oh and here’s my book review.

P.S. Here’s an article in the New York Times (“The Women Behind ‘You’ on Creating This Fall’s Darkest, and Most Timely, Romance”) about the TV series!! And here’s just a snippet from the article. I CAN’T WAIT!!!!!!!

“…Joe wants nothing more than to treat Beck like a queen. He also feels so entitled to her love and so sure he knows what is best for her, that he can justify committing violent crimes to achieve that happily-ever-after ending.

Joe is clearly unhinged. But, “You” implies, in a culture shaped by stories where obsession and manipulation are framed as the height of romance, the line between cute and terrifying is thin…”

K.Bromberg just posted her cover reveal for her upcoming book “Faking It” and the audiobook is releasing this month (September 25th) and it’s gorgeous!! No Amazon preorder yet (ebook will be up in January – thank you Cheryl!!), but it’s up for preorder everywhere else. Here are a few fun “bits” from the blurb:

Zane Phillips mistook me for his dog walker. It shouldn’t surprise me that the man with a suit more expensive than my rent would assume that I was there to serve him. The positive? I put him in his place. The negative? I missed my job interview because of it…

and then!!

…after a little white lie I tell spirals out of control, I’m somehow offered the chance to play Zane’s girlfriend to help promote his new dating website – and the best part? He can’t say no because he’ll get caught in his lie too.

Little did I know this would entail sharing a tour bus with him for the next few months…”

Maryse, I read Faking It is going to be audible release only on the 25th and then ebook January 9. :(

Maryse September 9, 2018 at 10:08 AM

Ahhhh that makes sense now why the audible is up for preorder but no ebook yet!!!

Cheryl September 9, 2018 at 10:09 AM

Oops, January 8th not 9th.

Jenn September 9, 2018 at 5:38 PM

I’d love to buddy read that with you Maryse but Knowing from comments you posted from other readers that this ends in a cliffhanger I can’t do it knowing the other books release is two months out. So I’m going to start “The Truth About Lies” by Aly Martinez because the 2nd book “ The Truth About Us” will be released on Sept. 13 so excited I love this author.

OMG Maryse, didn’t realize You was premiering tonight!! Setting the dvr now. So glad I saw your post!

Can anyone recommend good audio books? I have 3 credits, one I’d for the final Throne of Glass, but I don’t know what to use the others for. I don’t like to use credits for ebooks that I already have, I want to get my money’s worth and use them for the expensive books and the longer the better since I use them for walking.

JR September 9, 2018 at 7:52 PM

I added several of these to my TBR list. Too bad Faking It is not out on kindle until January – it sounds good.

Kandace M September 9, 2018 at 8:26 PM

I just downloaded Binding 13 too. I’ll buddy read with you all too.

Maryse September 9, 2018 at 9:14 PM

YAY!!! :D
